Do you deliver dazzling demos?

Kiron Bondale

Demos, or showcases as they are sometimes called, are a critical ceremony when they are run effectively as they address multiple project delivery objectives in a single event including: Validating that what the team has completed to date is valuable from the perspective of their customer and other key stakeholders. But demos are just like any other project delivery practice in that their misuse could result in a worse outcome than if they had been skipped entirely.

Time for a Demo?

Zen Project Management

When I first learned Scrum , the idea was to have 30-day (4 week) iterations with a demo at the end of each iteration. So the question is, how often should there be a demo? So the questions is, If it’s a short iteration, does it make sense to have a more formal demo of the stories? On one of my projects where we were using Kanban , we planned the demos every 4 weeks. This allowed us to finish a set of stories that were part of a feature, so the demo was more complete.

Demo is not enough, go and Deploy it

We had intermediate demo sessions with our customers, got feedback and everything went well. Sometimes even having a software demo with customers and getting feedback doesn’t work though it is a good practice. The problem you have with demo session is, who is using and controlling the software – most of the times it would be you and not your customer. You will be demonstrating things which you would like to demo and not what customer may be interested in.

A Beginner’s Guide to Scrum Ceremonies

Sprint Review: This is another type of meeting, but one in which the team demos what they shipped in the sprint. After the sprint has been completed, it’s time to get the team together to demo or showcase their work. Here, unlike other ceremonies, the review can last as long as it takes to demo all the work done by the team. These demos are not partial but a full review of the work. The secret to scrum is simplicity, even in the face of complexity.

All form and no (agile) substance?

Kiron Bondale

Showcases or demoes give a regular opportunity for key stakeholders to view what has been completed, to provide feedback to ensure that what is delivered meets customer needs, to maintain sponsor commitment and to provide a forum for visible recognition of the team’s hard work. Having the agile lead or other team member be the only person conducting the demoes doesn’t give everyone a chance to have their day of glory.
